RTVA, the national Andorran broadcaster has confirmed to Esctoday.com that Andorra will not return to the Eurovision Song Contest next May in Sweden.
Esctoday.com spoke to Mr. Francesc Robert the general director of RTVA earlier today in order to find out if Andorra would come back to the Eurovision Song Contest next year. Mr Francesc informed Esctoday that due to financial reasons the broadcaster had decided not to participate at the Eurovision Song Contest. The fact that the tiny microstate, nestled between France and Spain, has never qualified for the Eurovision final has also influenced the broadcaster’s decision. Mr Francesc also confirmed to Esctoday.com that Andorra will not return to the Eurovision Song Contest next year.
Andorra debuted at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with Marta Roure’s Jugarem a estimar-nos and has competed at the Eurovision Song Contest until 2009 when Sussane Georgi represented the country with La teva decisio. Andorra is yet to win the contest. The country never qualified to the Eurovision final, having taken part in the competition 6 times.
Will Andorra return to the Eurovision Song Contest? Only time will tell…..
